NANOSTRUCTURED ELECTROLYTE MEMBRANES BASED ON POLYMER-IONIC LIQUIDS-ZEOLITE COMPOSITES FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE PEM FUEL CELL

Objective

The PEMFC represents one of the most promising technologies in the field of fuel cells. One of the keys to the success of the PEMFC technology is the development of improved electrolyte membrane materials which can be produced in mass and can operate within a temperature range of 130-200ºC. The ZEOCELL project will develop a nanostructured electrolyte membrane based on a new composite multifunctional material consisting of the combination of 3 materials: zeolites, ionic liquids and polymers – integrating their beneficial characteristics. The membrane will have an innovative structure comprising a 2D polymer matrix and two zeolite layers, with the following properties: - High ionic conductivity: ≥100 mS/cm at 150ºC.; - Suitability for operating at temperatures between 130-200ºC; - Good chemical, mechanical and thermal stability up to 200ºC; - Durability (<1% performance degradation during the first 1000 hours working); - Low fuel cross-over (
